Our third outing in the senior championship started brightly in the sunshine in Ballinamore on Saturday but ended in a loss to Drumreilly.

Alan Glancy gave Annaduff the lead on the quarter of an hour mark and this was followed by two more Drumreilly points. On the 16 minute a fine Annaduff move involving Eoin, Alan and Gavin finished with the ball in the back of the net and Sean Mc on an streacher. The half finished with two Drumreilly goals, one walked into the net and one from the penalty spot. In to the closing ten minutes, Drumreilly led by seven points and Annaduff helped by a penalty coversion from Alan narrowed the difernce to a goal but time ran out before the gap could be bridged.

W/E 6th August 2017

We opened our senior championship with a comprehensive win over the neighbors in Cloone on Saturday. Frank McNabola opened the scoring for Annaduff in the initial minute with a fine point, Bornacoola registered their first point on the fifth minute which was followed by three unanswered quality Annaduff scores from Frank, Eoin and Gavin. The second quarter was probably Borancoola’s best period, outscoring Annaduff by 4 points to 3 during this time but they were still unable to take the lead, an achievement that eluded the Bors over the entire 60 minutes. Annaduff finished the half strongly with points from Gavin, Alan and Dillon, the margin at half time, two. Bornacoola opened the scoring in the second half coming within a point of Annaduff but that would be as close as they would get and the Bornacoola opener was quickly followed by a goal and a point from Alan, the goal coming from the penalty spot. Bornacoola scored the next two to come within a goal of Annaduff with 15 minutes left on the clock but then came a cracking minute from the McNabola brothers, Sean pointing and Frank hitting the back of the net to leave the margin 7 points. Gavin, Sean Mc, Dillon and Ray completed the Annaduff scorecard.

 

Annaduff: Jim McCormack, Garry Bohan, Dean Gill, Dermot Reynolds  (Capt), Dillon Keane (0:2), David Duignan, Mattie Cox, Keith Duignan, Kenny Cox, Gavin O Brien (0:3), Eoin Gill (0:1), Conor Reynolds, Sean McNabola (0:3), Frank McNabola (1:2), Alan Glancy (1:2).
